Armando Adrian Lopez
Armando Adrian Lopez was born in 1965 in the town of Santa Maria in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. Steeped in the mysticism and mythologies of his native land, his work bridges Catholic imagery and beliefs, and Native traditions (prior to the European colonization of Mexico) within a contemporary context.
Lopez cites Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros as major, early influences. Lopez’ intent is not to be part a particular genre; though his work is closest to Magical Realism, the figures in his paintings, upon close inspection, include facial elements that are more closely aligned with figurative abstraction, while contradictions of reality or more closely aligned with Surrealism.
Tanya Talamante’s collage assemblages, explores our cultural fascination with physical perfection.
Blueprints of women serve as icons of timeless beauty, even as they subvert the ideal figure through deconstructed silhouettes. With vibrant color and bold pattern, Talamante grapples with the idea of unattainable beauty and the pressure women feel to become idealized forms. Each work is meticulously constructed through Talamante’s unique process, which incorporates multiple layers of paper, pain, wax and resin.

She graduated from Design in Mexico and studied in the National School of Art in San Miguel de Allande, Mexico.
